Developing for different mobile devices comes with a whole new set of challenges. In this talk I will show you how easy platform independent apps/widgets can be developed and deployed using W3C Widgets, medical PhoneGap, health etc.. I will also show what the hurdles are and what is possible and realistic today. I will also show strategies using various web services such as YQL, Google Spreadsheets, etc. which enable amazing services using the above mentioned technologies as long as native APIs are incomplete on the phone.
